This is a favorite comfort food for our family on a cold night. Instead of chicken broth, I use water plus 3 T. Tone's Chicken Base available at Sam's Club.

WOW! This soup was pretty simple to prepare. I've never made dumplings before, so I was a little nervous... but at 20 minutes they looked perfect. This soup was even good the next day! I only made it because my husband has been wanting me to find a Chicken and dumpling recipe... and I served it to him and my aunt's family of five... even her 11 year old who has a list of about 8 meals he will eat (horribly picky!!!) asked for seconds. She had to have the recipe as well. A new favorite soup! Thanks for sharing!!! Kudos to the cook.

I cooked the chicken in water with the spices and just added enough broth to make 10 cups after removing chicken. That worked out well for me. My family loved it! Just enough for 2 lunches tomorrow. Thanks for posting!

This was delicious! I didn't have cream of mushroom soup so I just added another can of cream of chicken soup. I also made my dumplings from scratch. I will definitely be making this again.
